Ahead of the premiere of their new four-part Showtime series, Wu-Tang Clan: Of Mics and Men, the legendary hip-hop crew hit up Jimmy Fallon to perform one of their classic singles. What's even better about their performance of Wu-Tang Forever highlight "Triumph" is that they brought along Ol' Dirty Bastard's son to play his father's part. Complete with the same hair, Young Dirty Bastard brought more than enough energy.

Everyone featured on the original 1997 track (minus ODB) made an appearance, with RZA's verse sticking out as especially impactful. The almost six-minute track made for an excellent reminder of the talents involved with Wu-Tang back in the day, providing the perfect appetizer for the new docuseries. Of course, that's not to be confused with Hulu's RZA and Method Man-produced drama Wu-Tang: An American Saga.

Shooting for An American Saga commenced in New York City back in February, but the series still doesn't have a premiere date. Of Mics and Men, meanwhile, will premiere on Showtime on May 10, although it already played for a select few at the Sundance film festival in January. The four-part doc promises to offer interviews with the nine surviving members of Wu alongside never-before-seen footage of them all back in the day.
